Israeli Security Minister Orders Removal of Palestinian Flags from Public Spaces

HeadlineJan 10, 2023

Israel’s National Security Minister Itamar Ben-Gvir has ordered police to remove Palestinian flags from public spaces, calling their display a “form of supporting terror.” Palestinian-American author Yousef Munayyer tweeted in response, “Israel holds an entire stateless nation under military occupation. They got enough nukes to start a regional conflagration. But they fear a piece of cloth.” Over the weekend, thousands of people demonstrated in Tel Aviv against the new Israeli government and the increasing threats it poses to democracy and human rights.
